The Formula 1 SOCAR Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2019 is an exciting race, Kevin Magnussen of the Haas F1 Team, said at a press conference in Baku, ONA reports.

“I think it’s an exciting race. As you said, lots of action, lots of safety cars, and stuff like that in previous years. It’s a cool track, it’s fun to drive, and lots of good opportunity to overtake and race people. A good place to go racing,” he said.  

“I would say you always go into the weekend hopeful and positive, looking forward to it. Theoretically, it’s not a track that will in theory help our issues, or at least the issues that we think we have. But, again, we’ve scored points here with a slow car, and I don’t think we have a slow car this weekend. We have a fast car, it’s just that… You know, we’ve had both cars in Q3 at all three races this year and then we’ve been kind of like the second-slowest team in the race almost in all three races also, so there’s clearly an issue there that we need to fix,” added K. Magnussen.

The Formula 1 SOCAR Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2019 runs on April 26-28.
